Professor Zoom and Killer Frost Race to The CW’s The Flash

The Thawne character is set to be a slightly renamed take on DC Comics’ Eobard Thawne, the man who later becomes Professor Zoom/Reverse Flash. Snow, meanwhile, is better known in the current continuity as the alternate identity of the ice-powered villainess Killer Frost.

Already set to star Grant Gustin as Barry Allen and Jesse L. Martin as Detective West, “The Flash” arrives from co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg who, along with Geoff Johns, will write the pilot episode with “Arrow” pilot director David Nutter at the helm.
